The 18-year-old actress/singer, who is currently on her Gypsy Heart Tour, has launched the Listen Carefully campaign. The goal of the campaign is to spread the word among young people and adults to protect their hearing by lowering the volume â€“ a simple solution with long-term impact.
Miley shared in a statement, “As an artist, I want to make sure fans are able to experience the magic of music as it was intended. By just lowering the volume and using the right protection for your ears, hearing loss can be prevented, which means never losing the ability to enjoy the sound of a guitar, a beautiful lyric or a favorite song.”
To help her fans and even non-fans get involved, Miley and Starkey are starting the Listen Carefully Sweepstakes, which runs through June 15, 2011.
The sweepstakes invites fans to enter for a chance to win a â€œlistening experienceâ€ with the famous singer and actress during a sound check as she prepares for her performance at the Starkey Hearing Foundationâ€™s Annual Awards Gala on July 24 in Minneapolis — Sweet!
